Exceptional Mediterranean food served in an elegant atmosphere. Suitable for business or a date. Reservations are essential and the waitstaff can sometime get pushy about turning the tables. Regardless, well worth a visit. Service is very attentive.

A company dinner at this very upscale, but unpretentious, Greek restaurant was a wonderful treat. We were a little crammed into the back private area and the seating was a bit awkward because they pushed round and square tables together, but it was nice and cozy anyways. We had a filling 4 course meal and the wine was constantly flowing. For the main entree, we all had the grilled lamb chops, roasted chicken and halibut. The chicken was tender and nicely seasoned, the lamb chop was flavorful, however the halibut was overcooked and dry. For dessert, we had the selection of Greek cookies - the baklava was the best. I would've liked to substitute that for the Kokkari sundae, but I'll just have to go back another time for it. We also got a round of ouzo, so by the end of the night, I got to see a whole other side of a lot of my coworkers.Recommended for:Luxury Travelers

A greek restaurant, but certainly not in the village taverna mode. Kokkari is fairly high-end and you need to book. Located in the Financial District, it's popular with business people but pretty much everyone else too.
My expectations of this place were huge as I'd heard so many great reviews. For that reason, I was slightly underwhelmed by the experience, although both the food and service were excellent. I'm going to give it another go at some point, to see if it's worth a 5* review.

The upscale Greek restaurant, Kokkari, serves fantastic food and not to be missed. Plan ahead and make a reservation – it’s a popular place. So many things on the menu looked very good and it was hard to decide what to order. So, we picked many small plates and tried a variety of dishes. It’s hard to pick favorites, so I would just mention a couple of them – grilled artichokes and eggplant skewer, pan fried kefalotiri cheese, grilled octopus.

As the long celebrated month of May comes to an unwarranted end.....what better way to reflect on how the past year has come and gone and in the same train of thought look forward to what prosperity tomorrow may have to share. I can think of no better way than dinner out.....dinner out in the city..........dinner out in the city @ Kokkari. I've been hearing about this place...and with a billion and one reviews by every one and their mama....I guess it was my turn up at bat.
As usual.....fashionably half an hour late to our own reservation and yet they still let us in. I do like the open and high ceilinged spaces. I don't know why but I couldn't help but notice the wooden facade of the ceiling...or is it? I did hear that the venue is larger than it appears....with another large dining area and an elevator leading to more rooms of culinary bliss. Good Lawd!!!!
The food was appealing, aromatic, and plentiful. I had the rotissery special......there must be pilipinos in Greece because I didn't know lechon could taste that good. Hmmmmmmmm!!!
A lil bite of what everyone had to eat....and I was in heaven...
a lil chicken here....
a bit of feta there.......
sweet n glorious grilled mussels and shrimp......
and can't forget those lamb riblets...
OMG! And don't get me started on the the baklava ice cream....
no, I don't mean baklava with a scoop of ice cream on top of it.....
I'm talking ice cream.....
with baklava in it..........
drenched in honey goodness.

Think Greek isle taverna meets ancient Hellenic gastronomic temple. The Greek restaurants has quickly become one of San Francisco's most beloved, and the creative high-end menu blends traditional dishes (moussaka, souvlaki, tzatziki) with modern, California-inspired ingredients.

This place is a standout in the financial district and has been for many years. It's a high end, very classy Greek restaurant -I know we usually think of Greek as casual cuisine but this place is amazing. Very warm, cozy atmosphere, exceptional service and outstanding food. You will be hooked."

Kokkari is my go-to restaurant to impress out-of-towners and clients. Everything on the menu is divine and perfectly executed. Great place for vegetarians as well as meat/fish lovers. One of my favorite thing to do is just order 4-5 dishes from the appetizer menu and share with friends. You must get the Melitzanosalata, Taramosalata, Tzatziki, Favosalata AND Tirokafteri platter with housemade grilled pita.
For dinner, I usually order the whole fish baked in salt. It comes out extremely moist and flaky and slightly salty.
Finish the meal with a cup of stone-ground coffee heated over hot sand.
